Owners of the Motorola Atrix HD get $100 off the second-gen Motorola Moto X Pure Edition

The Motorola Atrix HD is almost three years old. In November 2013, with the device more than a year old, Motorola stunned users by telling them that the phone would be updated from Android 4.1 to Android 4.4. But the manufacturer now says that the chocolately update is not going to happen. To make up for the broken promise, Motorola is giving Atrix HD owners a $100 credit toward the purchase of the second-generation Motorola Moto X Pure Edition. In case you've forgotten, the Pure Edition is the unlocked version of the second-generation Motorola Moto X.

After the $100 from Motorola, the second-gen Moto X Pure Edition will start at $299.99. In addition, Motorola is giving Atrix HD owners the opportunity to buy the Motorola Whisper Bluetooth headset for $49.99. Those who are willing to take Motorola up on either or both offers need to click on the sourcelink and fill out the special form on the page. In order for your Motorola Atrix HD to be eligible for the deal, it must still have an active phone number. You might recall that the Motorola Atrix HD was an AT&T exclusive in the U.S.

Coupons must be submitted to Motorola no later than June 30th. Those eligible for the discount will receive a coupon code to be used when purchasing the second-generation Pure Edition Moto X and/or the Motorola Whisper Bluetooth headset from the Motorola.com website. The coupon code must be used by July 15th. The offer is limited to U.S. residents 16 or older.

It was made after the RAZR Maxx, which was the better phone.

The Atrix owners aren't getting a good replacement for their lack of update. This is just motorola trying to ensure people will upgrade.

More like Motorola giving them a middle finger and saying here take $100 off an overpriced midrange phone that's several months old.

They did the same exact thing with the Motorola Photon. I bought the Photon at launch. It was only 1.5 yrs old, but Moto did not update it from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. And on top of that, they locked the bootloader!

There are carrier edition and pure edition, pure edition doesn't have any bloatware and gets updates faster. Pure edition 4G LTE bands are different from verizon and USC version and dosen't have CDMA. It will work fine on T mobile and AT&T.
